Pride, The Greatest Enemy of Favor

(Proverbs 15:33 NKJV) “The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, And before honor is humility. ” .

God is always looking for an opportunity to bless His people with favor. However, pride shuts down the door of favor quicker than anything. Pride results in the withdrawal of God’s favor.

The devil, once known as Lucifer, an archangel of God built to produce music, lost favor with God all because of pride. In fact, Hell was created to reward pride.

Lucifer had so much beauty when he was in favor with God. He lost his beauty, elegance, authority and was brought so low because he yielded to pride. Pride literally destroyed him. He lost everything!

Don’t join the devil in pride. Humble yourself before the authority of heaven. Honor the authority of the Word of God and the Holy Spirit. Make God and His Word the final authority in your life. Don’t exalt yourself beyond your divine placement.

Respect the authority of God and the people that heaven has placed over you. Give humility its place and you will be honored with favor in due season.
DAILY SCRIPTURE READING Ezekiel 28:1-19
